    Default Confused about SHB-99 size.

    I have read many post about getting shoes 1/2 bigger for badminton shoes than you would usually wear. That is true, I used to wear US 8.5 and I found out that it fits me better with US 9 for badminton. I have tried SHB-100 and SHB-90. The problem is they both are too narrow for my wide feet. In many other threads, some said that SHB-99 are good for wide feet. So i decided to try it out but unfortunately this model is not available here (Montreal, Canada). So I can not try it out, but I am still willing to buy it since I have heard many good things about this model. But I also read in other thread that those who are used to wear SHB-98 should take 1/2 size bigger if they want to switch to SHB-99. Does that mean that I should get a US 9.5 instead? All this is confusing me.

    Also, this is the shoes I am considering buying.

    I tried:

    SHB 71/89/90/99 - US10 / 28cm

    SHB 68/98/65R - US10.5 / 28.5cm

    Others opinions may differ

    I guess I'll go with size US9. I don't have much a choice since I can not try it out. But SHB-90 does fit me well in length so let's hope SHB-99 will fit as well.
    If anyone has other experiences with 90,99 and 100 around size 9, please share. I still have some time to modify my order before it is too late. Thx
